Style & Attire

 Lehenga Choli is an outfit, which is also known as Ghagra Choli in other states. Along with that a choli or blouse is needed.Odhini or a dupatta is added to it to cover heads and protect women from heat. It also serves as a piece of modesty. Since a lot of embroidery and work techniques are used for creating Rajasthani Chaniya Choli, hence it features an endless array of patterns and designs, giving a wide variety of choice.

Each piece of Chaniya Choli is a reflection of unique designs and ensemble of colors, embroidery, prints and design.

Background

Lehenga Choli became popular as an attire amongst women mainly in North India, during the 10th century. The lehenga evolved through fine craftsmanship with the arrival of Mughals in India and their subsequent rule from the 12th to the 18th century. The original, ancient form of lehenga was mainly stitched from cotton, after which royal fabrics and embroideries like silk & brocade were used, making lehenga further evolve into royal attire.

OR,

LEHENGA or langa, (also known as Ghagra or Gagra, Chaniya, Pavadai and Lacha) is a form of full ankle-length skirt worn by women from the Indian subcontinent which is long, embroidered and pleated. It is worn as the bottom portion of a Gagra choli or Langa Voni. It is secured at the waist and leaves the lower back and midriff bare. In the Indian subcontinent, various types of traditional embroidery work are done on lehenga, with Gota Patti embroidery being one of the popular types for the festivals and weddings.

The choli evolved from the ancient stanapatta, also known as kurpsika or kanchuki, which was one of the forms of three-piece attire worn by women during the ancient period. This consisted of the antriya lower garment; the uttariya veil worn over shoulder or head; and the stanapatta, a chest band, which is mentioned in Sanskrit literature and Buddhist Pali literature during the 6th century BC

LEHENGA have been a bridal favourite for many decades for their versatility of style and their ability to make any woman feel like she’s living a fairy-tale. In fact, LEHENGA is preferred by women for any traditional Indian occasion especially by those who are younger as they aren’t as cumbersome as sarees and don’t require much in the way of draping. The awe-inspiring appeal of sarees meant that anthropologists and historians of fashion often overlooked lehengas but the modern lehenga as we know it today has been through its own evolutionary journey.

The lehenga choli, which is also known as ghagra choli in some parts of India, has its roots in a type of three-piece attire worn by women in ancient times. The ensemble consisted of a draped l

The Making

The intricate stitching of a LEHENGA choli dupatta set or a ghagra choli takes about a minimum of twenty days depending on factors like the fabric, embellishments. Hand-stitched, hand-woven LEHENGA end up taking longer owing to the detailing that goes into it. Often, communities exclusively into designing LEHENGA have clear tasks allotted to them, which forms part of the whole making process.

Styling Tips

From weddings to festivals, parties to poojas. Pair it with chunky, bright earrings and a gold clutch or high heels and a striking nose pin. While it makes it easy to float around in the soft fabric, special attention is required during the wash. Dry clean is ideal but gentle hand wash can also be applied.

  • Always identify the skin colour between fair, wheatish and dusky. The right colour will help you shine.
  • Always focus on your skin undertone, which can be warm or cool. The light colour lehenga is for cool undertones and bright colour lehenga for warm undertone.
  • Always choose as per the season as it will help you to look trendy.
  • Always choose accessories wisely. For special occasions, choose the heavy jewellery while for normal occasions, go for a simple look. If your lehenga is heavy then light earrings and necklace will make a big difference. And if your lehengas lighter then choose the heavy earring and necklace. The right length of heels will help you walk better.

Varieties

LEHENGA-CHOLI continues to undergo transitions with time, with cultural influences moulding its silhouette or style in the multiple versions of the lehenga choli known to us today. Talking of traditional styles, there are a lot of variations to the LEHENGA – the Sharara, Gharara and Lacha. The Sharara, Lacha and Gharara are lower attires, emerging from the 18th and 19th century and resemble flared pants.

The common trait in all the three outfits is that they are three-piece outfits comprising a blouse, long skirt, and a dupatta and are most popular as wedding outfits. The Sharara has a joint below or at the knee level, while the skirt below spreads out. The Sharara is worn with a Kurti and one or more dupattas. When two dupattas are worn, one is usually used as a veil and the other is draped on the shoulders. It is generally worn on weddings.

Ghagras are another form of a conventional skirt, but the difference lies in the gathers or pleats that the ghagra has around the waist and the lehenga is more form-fitting and is cut in an ‘A’ line.

Ghagra cholis come in many avatars; cotton chaniya cholis which are worn by women from Rajasthan and Gujarat, party wear ghagra cholis usually stitched in georgette, crepe, or silk.

Wedding ghagra cholis are detailed with a lot of heavy embellishments like a bead, Swarovski crystals, rhinestones, Kundan, sequins and lot more in vibrant colours and patterns. Tie and dye ghagra cholis, bead & mirror work LEHENGA-CHOLI are also popular.

The Gharara is only a Sharara divided into two and has a concentration of work at the knee also known as the goat. Lacha comprises a long blouse which almost comes to the length of knees. The skirt design may be the same as the LEHENGA or ghagra. This is the type of ghagra with slight variation in the blouse. There are plenty of variations to the traditional LEHENGA – Lancha and Sharara.

Wearing Lehenga

LEHENGA is mainly worn to very special events such as weddings, parties and festivities. However, depending on the amount of detailing on the LEHENGA, one can team it with ethnic jewellery, like Kundan, polka, meenakari, etc.

For climatic suitability, Lehengas can be worn all year long, thanks to the options available in fabric. The lehengas in fabrics like brocade, velvet, satin and silk are best suited for winters. Lighter fabrics like silkgeorgette and crepe can be worn in the summers.

Maintenance

LEHENGA-CHOLI need to be dry cleaned due to the multiple colours, fabrics used and the embellishments on them. These outfits should be stored in a dry place wrapped in plastic or a clean white cloth to prevent the metal decorations from tarnish. Dry-cleaning these outfits is the ideal way of maintaining them.
